Mimics Life Too Closely
If there's a moral and theme here it may be that some of us have three strikes against us from the start. Decent acting but a simplistic and tawdry storyline. And although I have always enjoyed Van Heflin as an actor the script writer left him some horrid lines to use as a lawyer. Despite the transparency of the script I could not help being glued in hopes that things would start to tie together.
It kept me guessing the entire storyline and left me bewildered at the end, just as if I were watching the evening news.

It was OK
It has pretty good characters, but the story is kind of mundane and drawn out. It has some good moments, but the characters are better than the story.
